To solve scaling issues and gas fee problems on the Ethereum blockchain, Bright Star Studios has decided to move Ember Sword to the Matic Network. The developers told in their recent Embercast podcast that Matic and the services they offer will be enough. However, if issues will arise Bright Star Studios has a backup plan with their own sidechain.

Ember Sword is an MMORPG in which players go on quests, harvest resources, create, earn and trade items. Having the Ember Sword in-game economy run on Matic makes all these processes cheap and fast. That way claiming resources, new weapons and minting new items will basically be free for all players.

Gamers can create their own character, pick a home region, and venture into the dangerous world of Ember Sword. The game is heavy on action, underlined by a classless combat system. Players can for example defeat monsters or other players, or explore the world as a tradesman. Depending on their choices, they can become a talented refiner, or for example a craftsman of weapons.

Ember Sword land plots

Ember Sword has recently changed their entire land system. There will be 160 thousand land plots, divided into three different sizes. The smallest area is called a plot, while an estate consists our of five times five plots. The biggest area is something the developers named a region, which consists out of 400 plots (20×20).

Plots can contain a settlement, where buildings can be placed. Some buildings however, are too big. These would require a town, which needs 2×2 plots and is represented as a single NFT. In a town players can place more advanced buildings. In addition a plot can provide specific resources or they can spawn mobs.
